Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

This is our absolute FAVORITE treat of this "diet" so far. It is SO good. Nothing diet-y tasting about this!

I haven't tried this recipe yet... but I bought all the ingredients for it last night at the store and will probably make it Wednesday.

Thanks for the recipes I think I will try the meatloaf in my next weeks meals, and the smoothie for a breakfast and the Chicken salad as something different from my regular Monday Lunch grilled chicken salad...

Thanks for sharing!
